1:00 pm
ridiculous practice of having a professional team show up at the white house. they should stay home with the fans that rooted for them. >> all right thank you all. thank you for watching.thank you to my panel. i am paul gigot. i hope to see you right here next week. >> a fox news alert. the countdown is on to the high-stakes u.s. /north korea summit. the president is on his way to singapore. the president expressing optimism ahead of his unprecedented meeting with kim jong-un that will happen on tuesday. the president calling it a one time shot for the north korean leader saying the opportunity will not come again. welcome to a brand-new hour instead of in america's news headquarters. >> good afternoon. questions on what we can express at this historic meeting for the president as he left today from the g7 and canada. on his way as we speak to singapore for the meeting with the north korean leader. that is where will be held. the president reiterating his
1:01 pm
high hopes for the summit. this was earlier today. >> but i really feel confident. i feel that kim jong-un wants to do something great for his people. andy has the opportunity. and he won't have the opportunity again. it is never going to be there again. >> now we have part of our team already on the ground ahead of the presidents in court. joining us now with the latest there. hi rich. >> good morning. you know this is the president really stressing that this is the only chance he says, for kim jong-un to transform his country. to turn away from nuclear weapons and isolation and to be welcomed into the global community of nations. where the united states will help rebuild the economy. the president says despite the great uncertainty into the summit, he is optimistic. >> it is unknown territory in the truest sense. but i really feel confident. i feel that kim jong-un ownwant
1:02 pm
do something great for his people. he has the opportunity. he will not have the opportunity again. >> the president spoke to reporters this morning at the g7 and qucbec. now he is on his way to singapore.expected to arrive here tomorrow or as we say in singapore, later today. the presence is north korean negotiating teams are working well with the united states. there are americans and north koreans in singapore discussing summit logistics and presentation and others in korea working at the substance of a potential agreement. officials say the discussions are about coordinating and timing. which weapons north korea would dismantle and when and how it would receive concessions from the united states. there are questions about the size of north korea's nuclear
1:03 pm
program, ballistic missiles, chemical weapons. the access kim would grant inspectors. north korea has complained recently about what it perceives as aggressive joint military exercises between the u.s. and south korea. as for the u.s. military presence in south korea, the secretary of defense says it is off the table in the summit. the secretary of state mike pompeo will join the president here. he says the u.s. needs a bold move from north korea. he and the president have acknowledged that needs more than one meeting. they also said it could be a spur of the moment developer that could lead to a diplomatic breakthrough.as for whether or not it happens, that is up to kim and he should know early on whether that is something in the first minutes he says having sized kim jong-un own if something like that is possible. back to you. >> that is interesting he will know within a minute. >> for more and all this let's braynon retired air force major general. -- thank you for talking to us. there is so much talk about, very exciting. the present causes a one-shot
1:04 pm
deal. tell us, how will this go down in the first minute the presence of the first minute he will know of the meeting with kim jong-un. >> i do know exact how the president will determine that but he certainly has an extraordinary amount of experience. negotiating and so we will trust you will do that. they will be clear pretty early just to much they are all in. let's face it, we have had seven decades of the kingdom and we've only had five months of international charm. there has got to be a lot of trust building in front of the process and it has to be demonstrated with concrete steps that north korea has to take pretty quickly i think. >> kim has says he is willing to denuclearize. so there are just words at this point now he is to show proof he means it. what kind of confidence building measures does the u.s. need to see and to see north korea is not in fact bluffing
1:05 pm
this time.>> i think that a couple of things really need to be established upfront. one is, we need to have a good baseline as to what his capabilities are and where they are located. his missile development program, missile production capabilities and the parallel capabilities on a nuclear weapons side of that. with the baseline, then we will be able to take those next steps with international inspectors having unencumbered access in the program. to understand what these are today and to be able to track the progressive elimination of the capabilities. >> the key is commitment to international inspection. kim must show transparency like he did. journalists were not even allowed to carry radiation detectors or lookout train windows after being escorted
1:06 pm
for hours in the countryside to that site. how will inspectors be treated differently? >> well, the is a great deal of experience and pretty extensive bodywork and how the international community does these types of inspections. and they had a high profile program going back to at least the early 90s when desert storm and desert shield when they were involved in that process as well. we have well established protocols, well-established procedures. we know exactly what we need to look like. but unlike that opportunity that he provided some journalists, these are going to be well healed nuclear experts that just are going to understand whether or not they are getting bona fide content that they need to make their assessments or you know this is not the junior varsity team. this is a well-established
1:07 pm
highly professional and well capable team. >> hopefully he will let them in and let them do their work without any guidelines or stipulations. there are other conditions obviously to the deal. there are so many. including getting china and russia to participate. >> yes, exactly. it's been interesting to me to watch the last elements of the conditions setting. frankly by both of the participants. and it occurred to me that to watch what kim has done with some meetings with the president of china over the last couple of months. but also recent commitments to not only meet with lavrov, the foreign affairs minister russia but also a tentative commitment to me with president vladimir putin in the fall i guess. he is going to continue to work inside of this equation and of course communist days has continued to work at side with the president meeting with the prime minister last week and of course you saw him at the g7 and he is also postured military forces in the area to remind the regime how serious
1:08 pm
we are. >> the video we just saw of the summit, it is spectacular video.to watch all of these world leaders together and wonder what's really on their minds when you see him smiling for the cameras. like you pointed out, the president has been fortifying other relationships with allies. just this week meeting with the japanese prime minister, shinto abe and then this picture, i would like to do a caption this. we saw on twitter this was released by the german chancellor, angela merkel. these types of venous, forcible what you think is on the minds of these people? >> i think that they look the president of the united states and they see just how capable he is at sending an agenda he believes in the best interest of the united states. he has conditions where they are all reacting to him. and i think it is difficult for
1:09 pm
them to predict exactly what his next move might be. i think they collectively -- >> they cannot predict. >> it's a challenge. >> but it is how he's affecting his leadership. >> it sets an incredible stage for what is going to happen with this north korean summit in singapore. we look forward to that. thank you very much commander of the u.s. intercontinental ballistic missile force, retired u.s. air force, major general. thank you. >> thank you. >> now another story. u.s. special operations soldier was killed and four others wounded in somalia. they say a group of u.s. troops with somalia and attack. al-shabaab has claimed responsibly. the president says my thoughts
1:10 pm
and prayers of our service members were killed. and those wounded in somalia are truly all heroes. >> former trump campaign chairman, paul manafort and even more legal hot water after the special counsel brings new obstruction of justice charges. the details and how his lawyers are pushing back. plus, how does protesting against the g7 summit in qucbec city. as the president doubles down on trade. >> united states has been taken advantage of for decades and decades. we cannot do that anymore. they all got a story about what happened to 'em. man 2: it was raining, there was only one way out. i could feel the barb wire was just digging into the paint. man: two bulls were fighting, (thud) bam hit the truck. try explaining that to your insurance company. woman: another ding, another scratch. it'll just be another chapter in the story. every scar tells a story, and you can tell a lot more stories when your truck is a chevy silverado. the most dependable, longest-lasting,

1:14 pm
to rollback obama care. the justice department saying it will no longer defend significant parts of the affordable care act. including the requirement that americans have health insurance. remember the individual mandate. ellison barber is live in washington with the story. >> in a court filing the administration side with the 20 republican-led state suing over the individual mandate. the states say obamacare as a whole is unconstitutional because the new tax law got rid of the individual mandate by just dropping the penalty to
1:15 pm
zero dollars. the supreme court upheld this in 2012 as an appropriate use congress taxation powers. administration agrees in part and says the individual mandate is now unconstitutional as are two provisions per the guarantee issue provision and community ratings provision. provision is meant to protect people with pre-existing conditions.in a letter addressed to house speaker, paul ryan, jeff sessions explains why the department of justice will not defend obamacare in this situation. and says he made the decision with the approval of the president. president trump has long said he wants to repeal and replace obamacare but he also repeatedly talked about how a replacement is to protect people with pre-existing conditions.here he is speaking to congress in february of 2017. we do not have the sound bite but in his address to congress he said that principles should guide congress as they try to create a better healthcare system for all americans. he says quote - first we should ensure that americans with
1:16 pm
pre-existing conditions have access to coverage and that we have a stable transition for americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges. democrats are urging the administration to reverse course center sent a letter to the president writing quote - it is time to stop the sabotage. we are a country of laws and the law must be respected. also defended and enforced regardless of the person occupying the oval office. the decision not to defend an existing statute is rare. but it has happened before. the obama administration did not defend -- >> thank you. >> julie to talk about there is a lot. let's bring in our reporter at axios. good to see you.i did little reporting on this myself yesterday for the foxbusiness network. expected to talk about the consumer impact, economic
1:17 pm
impact and stockmarket impact. just about everyone i spoke to says no, for 2018, this is a political story. those other things might be important down the line.but it's a political story and democrats see this as a gift for the midterms. can you pick up on that a little bit?>> you nailed it on the head. the democrats have been criticized for not having a cohesive agenda going into the midterms. as these are unfolding we're starting to see agenda take place in healthcare is at the cornerstone of that. this is something the democrats are going to heavily campaign on. representative connolly in virginia said, we will ride into the sunset with this issue. they're going to use it as a big campaign method in november. >> and allison brought this up a little bit per the president in the past has, when he talked about healthcare, spoken favorably about people with pre-existing conditions and helping out. so i guess, is a flip-flop or what is a strategy for democrats? >> that provision, coverage for
1:18 pm
patients with pre-existing conditions is a widely popular part of the affordable care act. across the aisle. on both sides of the aisle. democrats think it is a hot issue to run on. an easy issue to run on. >> is easy to talk about. it seems obvious but you never know actually how it will play out until it does. is there any possibility that maybe and because it's been done in the past that republicans see this issue and say, now we can really quote - unquote get rid of obamacare for good. and on the other side maybe some people -- >> it deftly could happen. what we are seeing right now is a departure from republicans being unified around affordable care act repeal in his becoming a democratic issue as it traditionally has been. >> if you look at these congressional races, the
1:19 pm
republicans have the advantage certainly, you would think by the numbers on the economy and jobs. and now the understanding is that maybe they were at this issue where they can get people out. you have talked about something i think is also really interesting. what president trump has done since coming to office in terms of appointing judges. what role might that play for conservative judges? >> exactly. one of the biggest moves the president has made, is appointing conservative judges at every level. and in this case as it goes through the justice, it will face conservative judges at every turn. who may role in favor of the republican side and decide that the doj has as well. >> and it takes a while. that is one of the issues to get back to what i said in the
1:20 pm
beginning. people said wait until next year, winter 2019 or beyond before it really affects the economy or consumers and that sort of thing. that's why many analysts thought it was a political story this year. how long do people think this will take to play out? >> the legal system, there is no telling. it's a hot political issue now. the backdrop is that they continue to get more expensive, health insurance continues to get more expensive and it is weighing on the americans wallets. >> good stuff, thank youfor joining us. we ask appreciate it. >> robert mueller hitting paul manafort with fresh charges but how the former trump campaign chairman is fighting back. plus, protest marches underway in qucbec at the g7 summit. where live on the ground with the latest. and the fallout after the president made a big impression. rywhere. actually, that's super easy. my bad.
1:21 pm
and we got to know the friends of our friends.r the friends. and we found others just like us. and just like that we felt a little less alone. but then something happened. we had to deal with spam, fake news, and data misuse. that's going to change. from now on, facebook will do more to keep you safe and protect your privacy. because when this place does what it was built for, then we all get a little closer. to me, he's, phil micwell, dad.o golfer. so when his joint pain from psoriatic arthritis got really bad, it scared me. and what could that pain mean? joint pain could mean joint damage. enbrel helps relieve joint pain, helps stop irreversible joint damage, and helps skin get clearer. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders,

so allstate is giving us money back on our bill. well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards. switching to allstate is worth it. >> reaction coming to the president making what you might say was a big splash after the
1:25 pm
g7 summit. world leaders are rubbing things appear the president has been at odds with some european counterparts and what they are calling unfair trade policies. >> people cannot charges 270 present and we charge them nothing. we can't do that anymore. we want other nations to provide fair market access to american exports and we will take whatever steps are necessary to protect american industry and workers from unfair foreign training practices. >> meanwhile, demonstrations outside. leading marchers through qucbec city. we do have fox coverage. we have rick leventhal on the ground. we'll get to that in a minute. at first kevin with more of what came out of the summit. >> good afternoon here qucbec where the presidents time here at the g7 was really relatively brief. it can certainly have an
1:26 pm
lasting impact on how hard the global training partners hit the u.s. with trade barriers and terrors for the present making his priority with his time here and of course before heading to the next summit over in singapore. but before leaving, he warned member nations of the days of unfair trade and excessive tariffs on u.s. goods are over. as for his relationship with other leaders in attendance, the president said this. >> the level of relationship is a 10. have a great relationship. angela, emmanuel, justin. i was in a relationship is a 10. i do not blame them, i blame as i said, i blame the past leaders for allowing this. >> the president also issued a stern warning for terrace because of previous made and grossly unfair trade deals. >> we have a tremendous trade.
1:27 pm
when we try and bring our pace up a little so it is not so bad and then they go up, the difference is, they do so much more business with us then we do with them. there we cannot lose that. >> we do so much. it is astronomically against them. >> is expected the president did not stick around to take part in assigning the final -- however, he did spend a bit of time talking about nafta. he says it certainly could be reformed but he seemed to strongly suggest it might be better for the rest of bilateral trade deals with canada and mexico separately. he thinks it might be a better way to go for everyone. traveling with the president, back to you. >> thank you kevin. from inside. >> g7 protests happening right now. outside, hunter's demonstrator
1:28 pm
started at the national assembly in qucbec city and are making their way to the old city. that is where we find rick leventhal. how's it going? >> julie, it's a beautiful day in qucbec city but it just took about an hour walk from the assembly through the old city. we just emerged from the grape behind the pier with some several hundred protesters, labor unions, environmentalists and others in many carrying signs as you can see surrounded by riot police. some are wearing masks. but there's been no trouble so far. this is one of the larger protests we have seen since the g7 began.the largest was on thursday evening. this one is comparable in size. we've been hearing a lot of chanting. they marched through normally very quiet part of the city. a beautiful part of this city where we saw a lot of shop owners, -- taking photos and
1:29 pm
videos as this eclectic group marched by. a lot of the shops boarded up before the weekend kicked up out of concerns. in 2001 as you might remember, they were incredibly violent protests in qucbec city for the summit of the americas. there were several hundred arrests during the event. 30 to 50,000 protesters. this is a look now at the size of the crowd. nowhere near that large but there are hundreds of people here who have come out in opposition to the g7. opposition to people care more about the money in their wallet and not what is in their heart. according to folks we've been hearing from today.peaceful demonstrations and vocal demonstrations trying to make their voices heard over the world leaders wrapping up the g7 as we speak. >> thank you very much, rick leventhal. >> a little more on this we have two guest per the host of the conservative millennial unconservative review tv. and a democratic campaign
1:30 pm
strategist. welcome to you both. we'll focus on politics of what happened or what is happening as they wrap things up inside the g7.i want to show you two pictures that appeared on twitter. one julie already showed earlier in the broadcast. it was put out by the german government essentially, a spokesperson for the german government. you can see angela merkel standing and hovering over the president who is in a sitting position with all the world leaders behind her. gives you an idea how they want us to see what happened in canada. it is us versus the world type of the thing. the second picture that flashed up there is put up by the french. a different kind of tweet, different kind of picture but the idea, is not necessarily to suggest what we know happened in the summit but to suggest what the germans want us to think of what's going on in the world right now. what do you make that? it kind of broke the internet for lack of a better term. >> is more of a pr move. it's not just germany but these
1:31 pm
are various countries trying to make us think they really do not need america. that they do not use america as the president said as their piggy bank. but it is just not true. our gdp is bigger than all of theirs combined. they do need us more than we need them. i think the president is willing to work with them but he's working towards is not just free-trade but also fair trade. i'm not a fan of tariffs but i am a fan of a good deal. i think that's what the president is trying to enact. i don't blame other countries for putting their country first as well but let's come to the table with something good for everyone. >> that is what allie brings up by the president earlier today when he said the u.s. you know is like a piggy bank that everyone is robbing. what you make of how the president has handled these trade issues? not building an alliance for critics to say all these countries go after china but calling for allies. >> it is tough to explain or follow exactly what he's thinking.
1:32 pm
it starts with the fact that he has cited number of different figures. many of them incorrect that speak to the trade deficit and for whatever reason he has this fixation on counting the goods that we buy but not necessarily the services we export. i think part of the issue is making sure we are starting with the right numbers. >> i understand what you're saying because he gets focused on just the trade deficit and the services are point well taken because does he have a larger point of how this is brought up in the past for as close as we think we are in some countries, maybe they don't fight fair all of the time. is that part of it? >> i think to the point that was already made a second ago, the strongest and largest economy on the face of the planet was so much power in terms of goods and services we produce and export. i think there's pretty leverage to get to a place where we do feel good about the trade and deals we are leveraging in the
1:33 pm
economy. >> i found interesting is that i think a lot of people in the republican party conservative movement however, you want to identify, as you said a moment ago who would normally identify themselves as free traders. they are given the president to pass or at least giving him some time to work this out. i mean for example his own economic advisor would probably be one of the better no free traders out there. on t.v. for years talking about it. what do you think that is? really giving the president a chance to work it out and negotiate a deal. >> i think we are hoping that his art of the deal actually does prevail. i, like other conservatives saw this happen in 2002.it resulted in loss of jobs. it did not work out well for the steel industry at all. even that was promised.
1:34 pm
that's what we are afraid of not. however there has to be something done here. there has to be pressure on other countries are slapping tariffs on us but don't want us to do it to them. i do think is unequal. i do think it's unfair. i don't think the trade deficit has anything to do with a healthy economy. i disagree with him on that. however i understand his thinking.>> it's interesting because it does go against conservative orthodoxy is everyone is talking about. let me get your views on russia little bit because quick thoughts, the president same may be to go back g7 to g8. what do you make of it? >> on the support that either. obviously the reason we kicked russia out of g8 was because of the annexation of crimea. it is not something that has been resolved. i do not think that is a kind of instability that we want right now. we actually do need to be working on our relationship with other people in the summit. i do not agree with him on that choice. >> and they said maybe he's just trying to need all these
1:35 pm
other guys a little bit. some sort of negotiating tactic. but your thoughts and bring a brush or trying to bring back russia. >> is deftly startling and interesting place to start the summit. it is stunning that an american president under investigation for collision with a foreign power, was step on the world stage and the first recommendation to reinstate that foreign power as part of the g8. only in america is that possible. idon't think see how it is making anyone stronger. >> we will leave it there. good to see both of you.the president on the way now from the g7 to the big meeting in singapore. julie? >> an important programming update for you. america's newsroom is being expanded. the shower will not be three hours long. starting on monday. >> our audience has an element of trust and that is why they watch. >> is a big part of our job to provide a calm. >> structure comes up here we need to stay down here. >> starting monday do not miss three hours of america's newsroom. >> we will be watching on
1:36 pm
monday. in the meantime today, former trump campaign chairman paul manafort 's legal team pushing back at the special counsel, robert mueller -- we have that ahead. plus, celebrity chef, anthony bourdain 's death during attention to the often hidden epidemic of suicide. experts say things are getting worse. we have a report on that ahead just as well. about homeowners insurance. just call geico. geico helps with homeowners insurance? good to know. been doing it for years. that's really good to know. i should clean this up. i'll get the dustpan. behind the golf clubs. get to know geico. and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be. you might or joints.hing for your heart... but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish,

1:38 pm
in the movies, a lot of times, i tend to play the tough guy. but i wasn't tough enough to quit on my own. not until i tried chantix. chantix, along with support, helps you quit smoking. it reduced my urge to smoke to the point that i could stop. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions
1:39 pm
which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. my favorite role so far? being a non-smoker. no question about it. talk to your doctor about chantix. >> the former trump campaign
1:40 pm
chairman, paul manafort pushing back against robert mueller. after special counsel brought new obstruction charges against him in a rush investigation. his legal team calling the new charges, dubious allegations. garrett tenney is live in washington with details. >> this is the latest in a long list of charges paul manafort is facing. special counseling now accusing
1:41 pm
of witness tampering piercing paul manafort contacted two former business associates trying to influence what they would say to investigators. in 2013 paul manafort and two men did lobbying work for pro-russian government group in ukraine. prosecutors claim those efforts included lobbying politicians in washington which would be illegal because paul manafort never registered to lobby on behalf of the foreign government. paul manafort attorney claim that never happened. in a court filing this land latest charting. saying from the stand record they conjure a sinister plot to persuade two former business associates to purge themselves of the upcoming trial in september. robert mueller team filed new charges as part of the effort to have the judge revoked paul manafort spell and taken into custody as this plays out. earlier today former doj official says he believes the lawyers will have a hard time keeping him out on bail. >> they will say that he did
1:42 pm
not tell anyone to lie. he was told them simply the truth. if the judge believes is more likely than not that he may be because influence that mr. manna fort has a decent chance of having to await trial. in a federal jail instead of at his house. which is a much different situation. it would increase pressure dramatically. >> latest indictment also lazy obstruction charges against a russian national was a former business partner. the president former campaign chairman now facing more than two dozen charges and it's important to note that all the alleged crimes took place before his work on the campaign. >> thank you garrett tenney in washington. >> for more on this now we are joined now by former trump campaign -- thank you for talking to us. >> good afternoon. >> i get all of your titles right?
1:43 pm
>> well, you can expand the show you can add more. >> quite accomplished! how bad does it look for paul manafort? >> i think you have to look at both sides of it. and the really troubling aspect of what the government has done. number one, they're trying to take them off a bail so he is much freer to defend himself. but the evidence is a couple of text messages. i know paul manafort for my work. he's not the type of person who is threatening. we are not talking about john gotti. and the limitations on his belt did not preclude him from talking to other people. it is an overkill to take his bail away. at most, there should be a limitation of the government is to be believed. >> also said the government recent superseding indictment is troubling. how so? >> it is also troubling that they have reported to her that
1:44 pm
a russian national. the constitution in russia does not allow them to extradite people to other countries. if they seriously thought that he had done something wrong there would have had a sealed indictment. >> right, why wait so long?>> it's an attempt to intimidate people from cooperating with mr. manna fort. >> here's what i wonder. if robert mueller had concrete evidence there was collusion that was sort of the reason of this whole thing and meddling with russia and the trump campaign in the election but if he has actual evidence that there was collusion on behalf of the campaign and russia, would he be going after paul manafort? or is he simply take the fall because robert mueller has nothing better? >> number one i think he is taking the fall. this did not escape the judge in virginia who is hearing the case who suggested the reason that robert mueller is going after paul manafort is to try and pressure him into pleading guilty and then somehow cooperating with donald trump. but here there has been absolutely no evidence and i of
1:45 pm
course represented the trump campaign. -- >> the attorneys have made a compelling argument. robert mueller is acting beyond the authority under the 1999 special counsel regulation. what are the charges against him, to have anything to do with the russian government and the trump campaign? >> absolutely nothing. the charges all concerning his involvement when he worked with the former president of the ukraine. and as we know he was forced out of office in 2014. other than this attempt to allege that he is engaged in obstruction, it all stopped in 2014. well before donald trump even announced he was running. >> it is definitely peculiar. i want to bond to another topic with regard to the former longtime staff of the senate
1:46 pm
